Embedded Processors

Enabling a virtual system-on-chip (vSoC) and customized I/O configurations

ARMADA 8K Family

The Marvell® ARMADA® 8020 and 8040 bring together a high level of performance, integration and efficiency. Built as part of Marvell’s MoChi™ family of products, each feature dual- and quad-core ARM Cortex-A72 processors and include a MCi interface that is essentially transparent to the driver, enabling a virtual system-on-chip (vSoC) and customized I/O configurations.The ARMADA 8K Family can integrate multiple 10GE ports with packet processor and additional offload engines for security and storage with full CPU and I/O virtualization.
